According to ATTOM Data’s latest Vacant Property and Zombie Foreclosure Report, nearly 1.5 million (1,447,906) single family homes & condos were vacant at the end of Q3 2018, representing 1.52% of all homes nationwide. This number is down from 1.58% in 2017. In addition the report found that there were over 10k vacant “zombie” foreclosures nationwide at the end of Q3 2018, which represent 3.38% of all homes actively in the foreclosure process. They also report that the zombie foreclosure rate was down from 4.18% one year ago.
“The number of vacant foreclosures is now less than one-fourth of the more than 44,000 in 2013 when we first began tracking these zombie homes,” said Daren Blomquist, senior vice president at ATTOM Data Solutions.
